Ballet class is essential to a dancers career and maintaining technique, flexibility and stamina.
I love taking classes and staying in shape. Across the floor and center work are my favorite. I love putting pointe shoes on for center work.
Pirouettes are my favorite combination to do in class. I love turns! I prefer en dehors
“outside” or “outward,” turns over en dedans (In wards) I have always been a natural turner. Fouettes, Attitude turns, and pique turns make it on my list of favorite turns as well.
Petit Allegro with beats
Petit Allegro has been a favorite of mine since I was younger. Small jumps added with beats are so fun and exciting for me! For a fun challenge, reversing the combination keeps my brain working and coordination on pointe as well too.
And lastly, grand allegro makes the list as well! Grand allegro feels like flying! I love moving and dancing across the floor. This part in class is the most rewarding and exhilarating. Not to mention a great stamina workout! Saut de cha, Tombé Coupé Jeté, Entrelacé, are a few of my favorites just to name a few!
So what are your favorite combinations in the center. I'd love to hear them!
